  • It is interesting to go back through the history of the 33 miners trapped under meters and meters of Earth, exciting story! See the capsule in which were rescued to safe one. Among other things more. Chile

  • The building is beautiful, the truth is that it is very old and is very well preserved. The spectacular library, has very old books. Unfortunately the space dedicated to exhibitions is very small, I was impressed that they have so little about the war of the Pacific. The archaeological exhibition was closed, but mining is very cute.

  • The Museum is super interesting, be covered in less than an hour. Everything is indoors, except the capsule of the 33 miners. It is free, and you can leave a tip. There are things about the time of the war of the Pacific: costumes, weapons, among other things, and also relics of the ancient mining of the area. With respect to the miners, is the paper "we are 33 well". It is the original. It is also the capsule in the courtyard. It is also the original. If you see another in chile, it is an imitation. There is a schedule (only in Spanish) very well explained how the events took place. One will be reading each of the events and supported with graphics for better understanding. Unfortunately, they were repairing 2 rooms when we went, but likewise is a good overview.

  • A space that preserves part of the history material of one of the main mining regions of the country. Completely free where you can see to the Phoenix 2 capsule used in the rescue of the 33 in the mine San Jose, Copiapó
